    Pros

    Great potential if restructuring takes place

    Cons

    Trucks are always breaking down. Air is most of the time not working or goes out in the heat of day. Management can care less. Had an employee to have to get rushed to hospital by ambulance because managers continued to tell them they could not come to base until route was done. Many days because of lack of organization routes suffer tremendously. Many nights myself and felliw co wokers are getring off 10, 11, 12 mid night. Upper management should really take a look at the over all operation. Its easy to cover and pretend to be running a smooth operation. This could really be a good place if more training was done. Training here is throw you in the ocean and swim.

    Advice to Management

    Have a heart to heart and hear your employees. They are the face and driving force of your operation. The turn over rate would not be as high if there was a better system in place. Most of the workers have been with the company several years and can be a big help if allowed. This can be a company that either get bought out because it get so bad or can be a leader for real in armour service. Our trucks are an embarrassment when other companys pull up beside us, or pass us broke down on side the road. Someone please help.
